Our mission is to Jewish students from different cultural backgrounds with opportunities that bring them together. “Bridging the Gap” seeks to bridge the divide between Jewish cultural groups by incorporating Hillel’s core Jewish values of Chesed (kindness), Tikun Olam (Repair the world), Tzedaka (charity), Jewish identity and Israel in to every event we facilitate and work off the theme of unity; embracing our differences and realizing that we are one mission, one purpose, one people.
“Bridging the Gap” Fellowship – is your chance to help us build a lasting and effective partnership between Hillels of NYC and our communities. The idea of “Bridging the Gap” fellowship is creating a community of dedicated college students and bridging the divide between Jewish students of varying cultures. Primarily this program has served Russian, American, orthodox, and conservative Jews and helped these students open a line of communication not otherwise possible.
